Fodor's Review

You're apt to see or hear hawks, egrets, Canada geese, and other wildlife on the grounds of Etude, known for its sophisticated Pinot Noirs. Although the winery and its light-filled tasting room are in Napa County, the grapes for its flagship Carneros Estate Pinot Noir come from the Sonoma portion of Los Carneros, as do those for the rarer Heirloom Carneros Pinot Noir. Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, and other wines are poured daily at the tasting bar and in good weather on the patio. Pinot Noirs from Carneros, the Sonoma Coast, Oregon, and Santa Barbara County are compared at the Study of Pinot Noir sessions ($50), for which reservations are required. Single-vineyard Napa Valley Cabernets are another Etude emphasis; those from Rutherford and Oakville are particularly good.
